Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

Tennent wrote this second sermon on the parable of the lost sheep, concentrating on Luke 15:4-5, "What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1747, then delivered it again in 1749, 1757, and 1763.
